Advanced Spencerian Lettering


This is the supply list for Harvest's online class "Advanced Spencerian Lettering".

We are offering a special kit with all the items listed below:HC3
Students will need:
Oblique pen holder or straight pen holder (if left handed)(H95, H61)
Nikko G or Zebra G nibs (N113, N118)
Iron Gall Ink, McCaffery's Black or Old World (I37)
Mechanical pencil (I use .05 but use whatever is handy) (S681)
C-Thru 12" grid ruler (S798)
Red pencil (S818)
Blotter paper or several sheets of regular paper to put under work (S261-11)
Viva paper towels, smooth NOT textured
Graph paper, 1/8" for practice (P22)
Translucent Layout Paper - Borden & Riley, or Beinfang, or whatever you already have (P10)



H61. Blackwell Plastic Handle Oblique Holder
Blackwell Oblique Pen Holder Plastic Handle

Black plastic hourglass penholder with the same brass flange for holding the nibs. The brass work is not as finely finished but is just as functional. Works with small nibs such as the Brause 66EF and almost all other nibs.

A remarkably simple design that holds most pen points for
Spencerian and Copperplate. Designed to hold the nib at a less steep slant angle for ease of upstrokes. Also available with a brass and wood handle.

(Works with most all nibs except the very largest vintage nibs and crowquill nibs.)

N113. Nikko G Nib
N113. Nikko G Nib.

These nibs from Japan are hand cut, extremely smooth, and long-lasting. They are chrome plated and have a medium flex. Great for Spencerian. Smooth writing with no burrs or scratchiness. Highly recommended by Michael Sull.



Your Price

N118. Zebra G Nib
Zebra Nib.

Similar to the popular Nikko G Nib, but a little more flexible and sharper. It will produce a finer hairline than the Nikko. Same sturdy quality. If you are using the Nikko G but would like to be able to write with thinner hairlines and thicker strokes, give these nibs a try. Michael Sull still recommends the Nikko G nib as best for learning Spencerian, but this Zebra G Nib is a good one, too, for Spencerian.

Which holders will work with this nib?

Just wanted to let you know about my experience with the ZEBRA G nibs: Santa was very generous to me this year and I got a dozen. I pulled the nibs out to play with this weekend and I have found my new love. I used the nib with Walnut Ink and the hairlines, so thin, so smooth, with a light touch and the nib skated effortlessly across the page. I really enjoyed working with this nib. If you haven't had the chance to try this nib out yet, it's worth the couple of bucks. I haven't tried any of my other inks, but I will be doing that this week. So far, I'm loving these nibs. Don't know if they are workhorses yet - I only had them a few days. - Ilovepenmanship

I love them too. The nibs are great with the iron gall inks because the ink does not eat the nib as fast. Great hairlines and just enough flex for shades. Much thanks to John Neal for these!!! - Nan DeLuca



Your Price
